asia trip. he said i'm america's first pacific president. he struck a lot of conciliatory notes when he was china. japan and the united states don't want that story line. they push back a lot on that. they are a little bit skidish about that storyline. that's not one that they want to see out there. chris: that's funny. they wanted to be the country that's part or the world again. >> right? >> absolutely. and there is a difference between the obama policy and the bush policy. they don't want to lose that america should lead the world. we set the agenda. if obama loses that and we saw it late last year when he accepted the noble prize, that fed into the storyline that he doesn't necessarily believe in american exceptionalism. it's more that i want to be president of the world. it's a very effective one. and i don't think -- i think that's a constant in american politic, people want the president to believe in america exceptionalism. chris: what do you think that this president is tilting to the world? >> i'm always amazed by people's warmth towards me. at the the same time having a presi

don't know. >> change come to america. >> welcome back. "game change" on the campaign. sarah palin's handlers were stunned by her lack of knowledge. you said she didn't know enough to write a high school essay. but she says, me worry? bill o'reilly asks her about the fact she doesn't know many things. >> i think these are -- the political establishment reporters who love to jen up controversy and spin up gossip. the rest of america doesn't care about that kind of crap. chris: would you. in this week's issue of time, you write that mccain and his allies are now afraid of palin. quote, intimidated by the rabidness of her supporters, believing they can't be swayed by the facts and getting cross wise with the most highly republican base, mccain world has allowed her vision of reality to go largely unchallenged. so this is about a -- facts versus what? connection? >> after her book came out mccain called the senior advisors and said let's not talk about this. le they let the book stand, even though many think it is made up. it has to do with -- in mccain's case, there's guilt on his par

is a "washington post" columnist. first up, president obama reminded the country this week that enemies of america are still very much a threat. >> we are at war. we are at war against al qaeda. a far-reaching network of violence and hatred that attacked us on 9-11, that killed nearly 3,000 innocent people, and that is plotting to strike us again. chris: today we examine that threat with these four reporters who cover national security. we'll look at how al qaeda threatens us abroad as that new year's attack on our c.i.a. headquarters in afghanistan so tragically showed. but first let's look at the threat of the next al qaeda attack here at home. david, if you're in charge of intelligence in this country and looking out at the world, what's the threat coming here? >> the threat is that this is a resourceful, adaptable enemy that learns from us. they study us. so if we start to block one avenue of entry, one kind of weapon, they turn to another. they come at us in different faces from the ones we're expecting. i'll give you an example. the early al qaeda attacks obviously involve people from south
